he came into this game and laid an egg early, it would open up the door for cooper bateman. that's how much pressure there was for him to perform, as a guy that's been sitting around for the last three, four years and he stepped up and delivered with that pressure on. >> chris: cassidy with the ford wrapup after the game. so, if you're alabama fan, you feel a whole lot better, perhaps, about the quarterback position than you felt four hours ago. alabama coaching staff, for that matter. >> kirk: yep. >> chris: harris. hit in the backfield. immediate penetration by vince biegel. the man of many hair styles. carves that w in the side of his head. he said he's going to try something different every week here to keep the teammates entertained. >> kirk: he's part of the personality of their defense.
you know, biegel is the personality we talked about schobert who is an outstanding outside linebacker on the other si side. kind of a little bit more low key, but my man can throw it down when it's a slam dunk contest. >> chris: that was crazy. harris. again. chased in the backfield. >> kirk: this is -- football team has a slam dunk contest and outside linebacker said, hey, i can handle this. >> chris: i love the reaction from the team. let's say they maybe didn't expect to see that from joe? fair to say? >> kirk: how many outside linebackers can do that? >> chris: not that many guys in college basketball can do that. >> kirk: that was pretty. 6'2". >> chris: he's only 6'2", yeah. he's got to get 236 pounds in the air to do that, too. well, we talked about "college
gameday" location and that big game, oregon/michigan state, top ten battle on abc in east lansing. notre dame with some momentum off this performance, goes on the road against virginia. what do you make of the oklahoma/tennessee game. you like both of those teams. >> kirk: i do. didn't surprise me to see tennessee early have struggling with bowling green. oklahoma, we'll see. that game is, i think, pivotal -- pivotal for both teams, though it's a nonconference team. >> chris: bama fans are going to be watching that lsu/mississippi state game. >> kirk: both teamss hovers in the top five. we enjoyed that game a year ago, watching that one when michigan state was playing well out at eugene early. >> chris: harris again. picks his way for a short gain. wisconsin defense still scrapping and fighting. the starters are still out there.
>> kirk: you have to. we talked about, you're evaluating constantly. week one. i don't care how good your week one is or how bad your week one is, it's week one. and you've got to be able to get ready for week two and beyond. and you learn a lot about how your team handles adversary. that's really what makes a team become special is when they get punched in the mouth and they come through it. you grow together as teammates and coaches when you go through some tough times and you don't give up. we don't have preseason football in college football. >> chris: scott with the punt and erickson fighting hard to get to the corner. mention eed at the top that at& stadium will be the site of the goodyear cotton bowl, which is one of the semifinal games. the other one is the orange bowl. we don't know the times yet. that will depend on the match-ups. but the focus here in arlington
and in miami, on new year's eve and then glendale, arizona, for the national championship game on january 11th. >> kirk: we don't know the times, we don't know which one's first -- >> chris: that's what i mean. >> kirk: which one's first and second. so used to the orange bowl, watching that one late at night. >> chris: so, stave with 1:11 to go. finds erickson again. that's been a good combination. they used the backs exclusively early and then got erickson involved. >> kirk: here's an example of maybe somebody sitting at home and saying, the game's over, you know, what are they doing? they're down 35-17. it's not about trying to score and make the score look for respectable. it's really more about, okay, we're playing alabama's defense. we have a chance to work our one-minute offense here to try to get down the field against a really good defense. let's -- instead of just killing
the clock, let's work. >> chris: their fire down field and there's the first turnover of the night. and eddie jackson is off and running. knocked down at the 20 and a flag comes in very late. another one as the safety converted cornerback creates the first turnover of the evening. stave just throwing it into traffic in desperation. >> referee: after the interception, illegal block in the back, number 21 of the intercepting team. ten-yard penalty from the spot of the spot. first down, alabama. >> kirk: playing man-to-man underneath, chris, but both the safeties, smith and jackson, who ends up making the interception, off to the right, they are just going to sit back and read the quarterback's eyes, playing center field. the ball is overthrown. it sailed a bit, and right into the hands of eddie jackson. >> chris: team that was 11th in the conference was only 11
interceptions gets their first of the season. now we're going to get a look at the third quarterback this evening, it's number 11, alex morris. the junior from allen, texas. so, they give the texas native a few snaps here in the final minute in his home state. harris is knocked down. that's a nice gesture. he was in there competing. in fact, many people thought that alex morris might actually win the starting job, ended up running third in the competition. but he gets back to his home state and he can say he got in the game. >> kirk: he did. they started with five, they worked their way down to three and eventually down to two, but alex morris was -- he was battling. he really was. he didn't do anything to hurt himself at all throughout camp. i think at the end of the day, the other two may have a little bit higher ceilings with their physical abilities. >> chris: they said this was a solid guy, really avoided bad
plays, which is not easy against alabama's top defense in practice. harris shows a burst and gets down near the 25. that will do it. so, alabama busts open a close game at halftime, and overpowers wisconsin with the running game. corey clement really limited, only had 16 yards rushing and left the game with an injury which we hope isn't serious. that would be a big concern. and alabama answers some questions at quarterback and gets a big game from derrick henry. let's go to heather with nick saban. >> heather: chris, thank you so much. coach, what kind of tone does this win set for the season? >> well, you know, i think that, in a game like this, you know, you are always going to go back and say, where are we? where do we need to improve, what are the things we did well, what are the things we need to do better and there are certainly a lot of things we can
do better in the game. it was a great win for us. wisconsin's got a good team. i'm really happy with the way our guys competed. i thought we played really well in the second half. >> heather: coach, a big question mark throughout fall camp was your quarterback situation. you said you needed to see game evidence. what is your takeaway now? >> i thought jake played well. cooper probably didn't have the same opportunities, but really pleased with the way jake played. he made good choices and decisions out there, and, you know, hopefully he'll only get better. >> heather: what are your thoughts on a two-quarterback approach moving forward? >> i don't have any right now. >> heather: and your defense certainly stepped up, especially in the second half. how did you basically render wisconsin's running game useless? >> well, you know, our guys did a good job up front controlling the line of scrimmage. you know, we made some halftime adjustments on the back coming out. kind of took that away and batted some balls down and put some pressure on the quarterback, so, i was pleased with the way we played until we put the second team in. i didn't think they competed very well. >> heather: coach, thank you
satisfied. i love it. thanks, coach. >> chris: there is corey clement, who was really limited. wisconsin not going to success very often, kirk, when they have 40 yards net rushing and 25 came from a receiver on one play. next test for the tide after a middle tennessee state game is going to be home game against ole miss. >> kirk: after last year, what a setting that will be in tuscaloosa, with ole miss and off to a really good start today. nick saban just kind of summed it up. he's got to be pleased. he'll look at the film and a lot of areas where he's going to be pleased. especially with the way the offense was going to step up. defense shutting down a wisconsin team, i think as the year goes on, you'll see this team put some things together, but that was a great, great start for alabama in a neutral site football game. >> chris: play to your strength. alabama begins what they hope will be a playoff campaign with a nice statement.
35-17 is the final. 8:00 on abc, kirk and rece davis will be in east lansing, as oregon battles michigan state in primetime. interesting big ten pac-12 clash. time now for the ford wrapup show and back to cassidy hubb d hubbard. >> thanks, chris. welcome to the ford wrapup. on the first college football saturday, all teams experience ups and downs, but byu had a thrilling win and devastating loss all in one game. on the road, taking on nebraska. fourth quarter, one second on the clock. the hail mary to mitch matthews. what a play. it would be reviewed and as you see, matthews falls into the end zone. the ball crosses the plane. however, byu loses quarterback taysom hill for the season with a foot injury. but they can celebrate this 33-28 win with a little crowd surfing in the locker room. how about number 21 stanford
